According to Kicker, Noussair Mazraoui and Bayern Munich have agreed on a four-year contract until June 30, 2026. Information confirmed by journalist Fabrizio Romano.
The arrival of the Moroccan international has been looming for some time. He is free as his contract at Ajax Amsterdam expires this summer.

Mazraoui is considered Julian Nagelsmann’s absolute dream player for the right (defensive) side. According to reports, the Bayern coach personally campaigned for a commitment and was in contact with the player.
Mazraoui is expected to replace Benjamin Pavard at right-back. The Frenchman moves into central defense in the new season.
Bayern won against FC Barcelona and Manchester United, among others, in the competition for the Moroccan international who refused to join his former manager Erik Ten Hag at United, convinced by the Bavarian project which guarantees him a place in Champions League next season.
Mazraoui was again a key player for the Dutch giants in the 2021-22 campaign, making 33 appearances in all competitions, contributing five goals and four assists.
Mazraoui has scored 10 goals and registered nine assists in 134 games since making his debut for Ajax in 2018.
